"Earlier this week, Inprise committed to bringing its popular developer tools to Linux. Project "Kylix" is aiming for release next year. There is strong developer support for the established C, C++ and Delphi tools, and the move will be widely welcomed."

"The Borland branded development environments have sold well. They are particularly popular with specialist developers who work alone or in small teams, typically building applications in specialist areas. That is a significant element in the whole applications mix, although Inprise has sought to move to a more strategic position in corporate IT departments. While the company has found progress slow in the corporate sector, its Borland development products continue to be highly regarded."

"Project Kylix is to be powered by a new compiler for Linux and there will be a Linux version of the Borland Visual Component Library. The result will be a component-based development environment for GUI, Internet, database and server applications. In July, the company conducted the Borland Linux Developer Survey, the results of which have shaped the Kylix project."
